    About the artist

    … I was born in Catanzaro…in Calabria…..in South Italy….It’s a strange place to live….there is all and nothing…a wonderful sea…and wonderful wild mountains…and I love both….I need to nature and air,sun,clouds,lakes,solitude…in Calabria there is all this….and I am very lonely…
    Calabria is a strange place to live….wonderful and terrible…it’s an ancient wild land…I love it and I hate it.

    …this terrible and wonderful world enters in my dreams every day in a violent and way ... so sweet .... always continually….it is my muse .... my art .... my music is my muse .. I like to mingle myself and to confuse myself ... every moment with all that I listen ....that I feel that I look ….with the photos that I cut ….I compose and I mix with my changing moods,with my fears ,with my thoughts ... Diamanda Galas ,Ghedalia Tazartes, Can ,Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone… Suicide, Aurobindo and the Mother ... my beloved tarots,Kundalini Yoga and Qi Gong,Carolyne Miss,Sai Baba..... all at the same time always flows every day in new and unpredictable colorful ways ... my muse are all my thoughts about our love now in this moment while I look around me ...my garden with all the fantastic flowers ….in me… inside me….out of me… and I listen and I listen everything ..... cut paste everything ....I put color on my thoughts on me and on you .... I love the fashion and the underground comics …they’ inspire me and enter a little bit in all that I create ... Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano and Moschino and Miles Davis and Ornette Colemann and Shirley Horn, Mickey Mouse and Asterix and the Sex Pistols .... a continuous stream of thoughts that I cannot nor I want to control and I do not want to judge but I leave that all to flow freely on the sheet of paper and colors… in my blood in my laughters .... I like the Renaissance painters,the Byzantine icons and the Sacred art and Andy Warhol Patty Waters and Joni Mitchell .... I use all what I have on my hands .... I drew and painted for years, only in black and white with tons of black indian ink .... I needed of colors .... of new materials to know myself again .... I like to experiment and reinvent myself again and again and again ... to decompose me ..to break me in my knots and then to knot them again and again .... Genesis P.Orridge & Thee Majesty .... my muses .... Coil, Merzbow, Masonna, Terry Callier, The Incapacitans ... my muses .... now in this moment.... I'm cutting, gluing, knotting, coloring, watching, listening .... in a fantastic continue punx trance…..

    …my art is Anarchic, cool, conceptual, twisted, schizophrenic, obsessive, chaotic…
